Broncos complete interview with Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy


The Broncos have completed their 10th interview for their head-coaching vacancy, as General Manager George Paton and Co. met with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on Friday.

Bieniemy, who is the University of Colorado's all-time leading rusher and a former NFL running back, has 14 years of NFL coaching experience, including the last four as Kansas City's offensive coordinator.

During his time in Kansas City, Bieniemy has helped lead the Chiefs' offense for the entirety of Patrick Mahomes' career as their starting quarterback. In that span, the Chiefs have won two AFC Championships and one Super Bowl.

"He's been one of the longest tenured offensive coordinators in the league, which I find to be fascinating given how volatile the coaching circus can be sometimes," The Athletic's Nate Taylor told "He's extremely qualified. … There's a lot to like about Eric Bieniemy, but I think he's a very well-rounded coach that is obviously capable of leading an organization."

Bieniemy is one of several candidates with a background on the offensive side of the ball, including Packers OC Nathaniel Hackett, Packers quarterbacks/passing game coordinator Luke Getsy, Cowboys OC Kellen Moore, Bengals OC Brian Callahan and Rams OC Kevin O'Connell, who previously interviewed with the team.

Bieniemy reportedly is the final candidate who will interview with the Broncos.
